Devils Claw Root Powder
Devils Claw Root Powder (Harpagophytum procumbens) has a long history of traditional use within the medicinal practices of the native tribes within Southern Africa. The root, which has a distinct, claw-like appearance, is often allowed to dry in the sun before it is used to relieve pain, improve digestion and treat heartburn, reduce fever, ease headaches, and even help treat some allergies. As European explorers became acquainted with the root, it became quite popular among the English and the Dutch, and was used for treating arthritis.
In modern usage ,Devils Claw Root Powder is most recognized for relieving joint and muscle pain, and there have been multiple studies examining how it works. Scientists are still uncertain as to how exactly it functions, but they have shown that it does not function like a Cox-2 inhibitor, and therefore does not include the harmful side effects that can manifest in the cardiovascular system. Testing in Germany and France has revealed that Devils Claw Root Powder can function as an anti-inflammatory, improving mobility and aiding pain relief.
